    Chocolatey Peanut-Butter Crispy Rice Treats (Gluten-Free)

    Ingredients:

    • 3 Tablespoons butter or butter substitute
    • 1 (10 oz) bag gluten-free marshmallows
    • 1/2 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla extract
    • 1/5 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 cup gluten-free peanut butter
    • 5 cups gluten free crispy rice cereal
    • 1 cup gluten-free chocolate chips (optional)
    1. Grease an 8×8 square glass pan.
    2. Melt the butter in a large pan or dutch oven over low heat. Add the marshmallows, vanilla, salt and peanut butter, stirring constantly until melted and smooth; this takes several minutes.
    3. Remove from heat and add cereal, stirring until well mixed. Scrape the mixture into the prepared pan and press it into the pan with a greased spatula (or you can place a piece of waxed paper over it and press down).
    4. If you want to add a chocolate coating on top of your crispy rice treats, place chocolate chips in small, microwave-safe bowl and heat in 30 second intervals until melted; stirring as needed.
    5. Spread melted chocolate over the bars and allow to set completely, about 2 hours at room temperature ( you can also place them in the refrigerator or freezer to speed up this process).
    6. Cut bars into squares and serve.

    Hi Allan,

     

    There are a variety of gluten-free rice cereal substitutes, so you will have to find one that works for you. I use the Enjoy Life Foods crunchy rice, but Rice Chex is gluten-free, and makes a great substitute, and I believe Barbara's makes a rice cereal free of gluten ingredients also.

  • About Me

    I diagnosed myself for gluten intolerance after a lifetime of bizarre, seemingly unrelated afflictions. If my doctors had their way, I would have already undergone neck surgery, still be on 3 different inhalers for asthma, be vomiting daily and having chronic panic attacks. However, since eliminating gluten from my diet in May 2009, I no longer suffer from any of those things. Even with the proof in the pudding (or gluten) my doctors now want me to ingest gluten to test for celiac-no can do.
